Win Fellini’s CASANOVA on Blu-Ray In Our Competition





To celebrate the release of Fellini’s CASANOVA on Blu-Ray in the UK from 7th September 2015, we’ve two copies to give away courtesy of Mr Bongo Films.

Federico Fellini’s darkest film cracks through the myth of Giacomo Casanova. As played by Donald Sutherland (M.A.S.H, Don’t Look Now), the notorious womanizer is presented as a pitiable and terrifying figure. Casanova craves respect as a scholar and yearns to pursue his interest in alchemy. A sex scandal lands him in prison, but an escape to Paris provides him a new lease of life. Yet every Court in Europe and its attendant patrons and hostesses will only entertain him if he lives up to his reputation in the ritual displays of sex and courtship which form part of the daily life of 18<sup>th</sup> Century Europe. Fellini had dealt with the theme of the frustration of human desires in La Dolce Vita and 8 ½. In Casanova, the nobleman’s search for happiness achieves tragedy, a painful reflection of the human condition.

I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. He was great as Vernon Pinkly in the Dirty Dozen, especially when he was acting as a General to inspect the troops, who were guarding the prison camp. That scene was hilarious, loved the movie.

  2. Don’t Look Now. A very creepy film and of course with THAT sexy scene that has been much talked about. He and Jullie Christie had terrific chemistry.

  3. Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H, 1970. Probably the first film I saw him in at the pictures. Fabulously dry and humorous and one of the Seminal films of its era. Sutherland’s portrayal of Hawkeye would be considered one of the great characterisations of all time if not for Alan Alda making “Hawkeye” his in the long running TV series.

  4. that’s a very tough question. sutherland has one of the all time great filmographies. no matter what you like, he’s done it.

    i’ll go for “day of the locust”. massive flop at the time, but stands up so well now. it’s a dark, difficult, strange and brilliant. sutherland’s character is called homer simpson, which adds a little layer that wasn’t there at the time, particularly to the ending. great performance from him too (great performances from everyone, actually).

    surprised to find out more recently that the horrible androgynous jeepers creepers child who gets trampled by sutherland was played by jackie earle haley.

  5. Don’t Look Now – Saw it when it was in the cinema when it was released – frightened me to death! Also made the very attractive girl I was with to grab hold of me tightly! 😉

  6. Invasion of the Body Snatchers- it still scares me when towards the end you think they are safe and going to get away then all of a sudden that terrifying screaming sound they make to identify those who have not yet been taken over and their fingers pointing at the “human”.

  7. Too many to choose from but I’ll go with the more recent Hunger Games because he is perfectly cast and utterly convincing as the sadistic president.

  8. As a lead ‘Bodysnatchers’…but I think he was much better in his support roles, especially as the looney tank commander in ‘Kelly’s Heroes’ and in my fave five minute scene ever (in J.F.K.) with his myth busting speech as ‘X’…- people are suckers for the truth…very cool Buba 😉

  9. Don’t Look Now because I have always loved it because of the themes and how well it’s shot but, having just come back from Venice (where I got lost, at night!!), it now has a greater resonance.

  10. Bethune – takes in many countries, Russia, China amongst others. Fact based and inspiring, thought provocking, whilst entertainng

  11. Always been a big fan of Alistair Mcleans books with Bear Island being a particular favourite. Donald Sutherlands portrayal of Frank Lansing was brilliant and very true to the character in the book

  12. There are many great performances to choose from – Don’t Look Now, Kelly’s Heroes and MASH were all worthy, but I’d vote for Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

  13. His role in the Hunger Games as President Snow stood out amongst a stellar cast, his sinister approach portrays the character in a manner fitting of the book

  14. Donald Sutherland is such an accomplished actor that anything he does is usually very good – Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, Klute, Animal House. But he also did some dire movies – so I’m going for The Kentucky Fried Movie – he is the only thing I can remember about this awful movie when I watched it as a kid.

  15. In The Eagle Has Landed he played the role of Liam Devlin with such charm that you were almost glad when he managed to escape after the failed attempt on Churchill’s life

  16. best movie Donald Sutherland has ever appeared in is the Nic Roeg ghostly masterpiece “Don’t Look Now”. as the non believing psychic who believes he keeps seeing the image of his dead daughter but in fact is seeing the dwarf who will kill him. Absolutely brilliant.

  17. Love him in the Italian Job, you always feel is presence in a movie character. He has a great part in the movie even if it is a short one. Very strong personality get you grip in from the start.
